2017 Winter Range at Phoenix Arizona concluded today with 749 shooters taking part, our member Renegade Ty was fortunate that he was able to compete, we trust that he had a fantastic experience at seeing a shoot of this magnitude. Guess he will have quite a bit to tell on his return. Today at The Last Frontier five scenarios kept us well and truly entertained with The Sheriff cleaning the match, congratulations to Sundance Kid who was the overall winner, both Buster Giggs and Bad Alzima won their categories. Interested in taking home a "Crocodile Dundee" knife see Buster Giggs for details.Scores are here : Match Final Main Match 02262017.pdf

The Last Frontier Cowboy Action, such a great place to hone your skills ready for the go away matches, why don't you come along and see how its done ? You may just get hooked on being in the wild west just short of being on a time machine.

Today was a much cooler day then it was for last weeks shoot, I guess we are heading towards winter much faster then we realize with one month gone in 2015 already. Great to see all of our serious shooters here today to see if they could out do their shoot times from last week. Our local photographer Siringo was here also taking a few shots in his spare time, check how many empty shells are in the air, I can find three, how about you ? Well done Siringo.

Perfect Climatic conditions were given to us today and more then an enjoyable day was had by all that attended. I must apologize as the scores today are only of that of Posse # 1 due to some minor technical breakdown of computer data. Hopefully I will have the situation back under control in readiness for next weeks shoot. Bad Alzima has provided some of the Stages for next weeks shoot which starts Bang on 9am,thankyou Bad Al. It is very pleasing to see Buster Giggs well on his come back trail. Just wonder what he has in mind ? Our overall winner today was Sundance Kid, congratulations to you, you shot very well considering your badly blistered hand. I trust that it has completely healed before next weeks competition. Scores for today as I have them : Match Final Main Match 02232014.pdf

Firstly a warm Welcome and Happy New Year to all those shooters out there no matter what disciplines you shoot. We had a very pleasant day today at the Last Frontier with scenarios of a different twist then those that we had been used to. Like always some of us just needed to blame the firearm for our mishaps. Once again the weather was very kind to us offering us cool, shaded, but extreme drought conditions, a complete opposite from last year wereas we had 576mm of torrential rain leaving the Last Frontier and many other areas completely isolated. I must go now and help Jack Beauregard as he is concreting the foundations for our new Telegraph Office. Oh, here is today's scores. Match Final Main Match 02022014.pdf

sprungbuckboard1.jpg (476473 bytes)Another great day was had by all those that attended, the weather was quite pleasant. I guess you might say the lull before the predicted storms and more flooding supposably coming our way. This last week produced 120mm of rain and localised flooding and the predictions are offering more this time...... Lakota shot the match clean today, congratulations. The Last Frontier shoots again next Sunday 24th.March, 2013. Will you be here to enjoy the Last Frontiers hospitality?

Today was the first shoot for 2013 and what an exciting day it was and an excellent roll up too, thankyou. The weather was perfect just the complete opposite to that of last weekend when we had 576 mm of rain which made the Last Frontier un-visitable with all the flooding. Today we made up for that with five outstanding Stages. Two shooters shot the match clean, Bad Alzima and Grissley James... congratulations to you both. Check in from time to time for info on our new match called "Shooting the Wild Frontier" you can even use your .45acp semi autos. Todays scores are here : 03022013.pdf

It was great to see Siringo return today for the first time since his major surgery. Welcome back Siringo.  Most of us had a hard time catching our horse today not to mention remembering its name....Smile and there was the sharing out of the gold at Frontier Junction. Did you miss out ? Why don't you come along and join in the fun at The Last Frontier ? Get the details from the homepage. Here are the scores :05022012.pdf

GrisleyJamesRoosterCockburn.jpg (82595 bytes)Firstly a special thankyou to the visitors that came along today interested in joining the Last Frontier Shooting Club Inc. I know that you have found a sport being the closest thing to the Wild West without going looking for in a Time Machine. Today was the last run of repeat scenarios, next week there will be five stages all with new content. Just the same it is interesting to compare the times of past similar events. Congratulations goes to both Cpt.Jackson and Wyatt Earp who shot the five stages clean. Todays scores are here in the pdf file.27022011.pdf

The day was quite warm and cloudy after the very early morning rain at 6am.This was followed by pleasant dry conditions until the last shot was fired for the morning.....then the Heaven's opened and down came the rain. When lunch was finished and it was time for all to head off home the sun came out again shining brightly. A wonderful day of shooting was had by all, thankyou for coming along.

LoadingBlack.jpg (84749 bytes)alabama1.jpg (65699 bytes)Adverse weather reporting kept some of the well know shooters away today but still the diehard were here with guns a blazing.
An enjoyable five stages were shot featuring some trick shooting at the Opal Mine and a few lessons were taught on Stage 5 by Buckskin Leslie using his wife as an in between the targets. Due to his expert teaching skills no harm came to his wife. You will be able to get similar skills next week 7th March,2010. Be there and get square.
Only 8 mm of rain fell in one heavy shower during the match. Today's scores are here 28022010.pdf

Firstly I would like to Lakota Cpt AugMc.jpg (81084 bytes)thank the Cowboys and Cowgirls that braved the wet conditions today and made our shoot an enjoyable one.

Top temperature today was 30 degrees but a cooling southerly made for pleasant shooting conditions. The cowboys started rolling in at 8am ready for the days competition. It was also pleasing to see visitors coming for a look see. Thanks Cpt Augustus and I.D.Claire for issuing out the invitations. Also a very Special Thankyou to the man that was Doc Holidays lifetime mate Bill Neville,for the perpetual trophy " Rest Easy Macca Old Mate" he made in honour of his mate".

Yes, good shooting weather again today at The Last Frontier. A mild cloudy day made for fast shooting scores. It was pleasing to see the southern shooters here again, as one of them told me "The Last Frontier is one of the premier places to get in some top practise". Winners of the Pat Garrett were Wild Bill Fisher & Bull Shot. One Armed Bill was well again after last weeks burn out and he was back in good form. No Pony just clipped Alabama shooting times, I recond' he will have to watch out otherwise he may have to walk home in the future. Mohawk didn't drop his gun today and showed us some mighty fine shooting. Checkout the pdf file to view the scores. 01022009.pdf

Saw quite a cool day with a couple of intermittent showers pass over the Last Frontier. There were plenty of smiles to go around with five challenging stages being shot, everyone present had a ball.

February 26th.2006.sunday26.jpg (100943 bytes)LesterMoore.jpg (117838 bytes)The morning started with a couple of light showers and a temperature of 22c deg.(ie.66f.degrees for our American friends) and reaching a maximum of 31c (89f).Five demanding stages were shot and all present had a good time. We had two visitors today from the United Kingdom. They tell me that real bullets and pistols and dressing up in the Spirit of the Game are not allowed in the UK. Now that is something to think about. So to all you shooters in Australia its time to put Australian apathy aside and start participating in your Clubs Events before its too late.
